BEAUTY. A lot of you have been asking for a post about my favorite makeup products and even though I’m no expert I’m a huge makeup junkie who loves to try out new products. My favorites are constantly changing, but below I’ve listed some of my current must haves:
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in ‘Porcelain’- I discovered the tinted moisturizer from laura Mercier last year when I wanted to find something light to wear on hot summer days and have been wearing it ever since. If you’re looking for a lot of coverage you might have to look elsewhere but if you just want something really light that evens out your skin tone a bit, this is perfect.
Diorskin nude foundation in 010 ivory - I used to be a huge fan of the Diorskin pure light foundation until it got discontinued and the Diorskin “Nude” is probably the most similar one I’ve found. I usually wear this for events/parties when I want a little bit more coverage than the tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier can provide, but it’s still a very light foundation that looks super natural on your face.
Nars Illuminator in ‘copacabana’ – I use this one as a highlighter on my cheekbones + other areas I want to highlight and it really does wonders for a tired face.
Mac select cover-up concealer in NW15 – Being super duper pale I always have a hard time finding products that works with my skintone but when I found this concealer from MAC it was love at first sight. It’s great for covering up dark circles + blemishes and if you like me have trouble finding foundations/concealers that matches your skintone, MAC can definitely be worth a try!
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in ‘Pale Pink’ – When it comes to blush I’m a big fan of creamy products as I think the end result looks so much more natural, and these ones from Bobbi Brown also looks great on your lips!
MAC Prep + Prime transparent finishing powder – great for setting your makeup + reduce shine.
Guerlain terracotta bronzing powder – One of the best bronzers out there!
Shiseido eyelash curler - Couldn’t go a day without this one, by far the best eyelash curler I’ve ever tried.
Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Mascara – When it comes to mascara I’ve been an avid user of Helena Rubinsteins lash queen mascara for years and years. I have quite short, straight lashes but this one gives them that wow effect that no other mascara can achieve!
Smashbox Photo Op Eye Enhancing Palette for Blue Eyes – This eyeshadow palette is another gem that I found during one of my many visits to Sephora. It contains six eyeshadow specifically chosen to enhance blue eyes and it really does the trick! It’s also available for brown + hazel eyes and I definitely recommend you to try them out.
H&M Divided Liquid eyeliner – As you know, I’m a huge fan of the classic winged eyeliner look and after trying lot’s of different liners I always come back to this one from H&M. It kind of resembles a felt pen and makes it so much easier to achieve that perfect cat eye.
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks – When it comes to lipstick I have TONS of favorites but these ones from Max Factor are definitely the ones I use the most at the moment. I always use my fingers to apply these lipsticks for a softer, less “made up” look and I absolutely love the creamy texture of them! My favorite shades are ‘Ruby Tuesday’, ‘Pink Brandy’ and ‘Bewitching Coral’ and they also work great as blush by dabbing some on the apples of your cheeks.
As I mentioned earlier I love trying out new products so if any of you have any suggestions on awesome beauty products please share them in the comment field below!
